Release Date: 1990-01
Genre: Medical

This is the fully revised and updated fourth edition of the acclaimed Animal Physiology, a survey emphasizing fundamental principles. The text is written for those who want to know how things work, what animals do, and how they do it. The book deals with such traditional physiological subjects as respiration, circulation and digestion, arranged according to major environmental features: oxygen, food and energy, temperature, and water. This fourth edition has been updated in all chapters where there is essential new information, yet the general outline of the book remains the same. As a new feature, each chapter now begins with a brief synopsis, outlining its essential features and the fundamental principles to be discussed. There are nearly two hundred new references, chosen with an emphasis on recent developments. It incorporates discussions of recent research including deep sea rift animals, hearing in fish, and gas exchange in eggs. The book is aimed at upper level college students and graduate students of comparative physiology.

Comparative Animal Physiology Environmental and Metabolic Animal Physiology

Author: C. Ladd Prosser
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 047185767X
Release Date: 1991-03-18
Genre: Science

Here is a uniquely modern approach to the study of physiological diversity that builds on the tradition established by C. Ladd Prosser's Comparative Animal Physiology. Responding to the need for a rigorously up-to-date, comprehensive survey of function and integrative systems in a variety of species, which is also easily accessible to the user, Dr. Prosser has delivered a thoroughly revised Fourth Edition in a convenient two-volume format. This carefully designed framework lets each volume zero-in on distinct aspects of comparative physiology normally studied as a whole unit. From the study of genetically replicating molecules to investigations of adaptive modulation, these two companion volumes offer an all-encompassing view of the field. With their contemporary approach, scholarly editing, flexible format, and detailed contents, Neural and Integrative Animal Physiology and Environmental and Metabolic Animal Physiology will stand together as the authoritative source in the field.

Functional Anatomy and Physiology of Domestic Animals

Comparative Physiology

Author: Pierre Dejours
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 0387965157
Release Date: 1987-07-27
Genre: Medical

This volume examines the extent to which the design and function of terrestrial and aquatic animals are determined by the physicochemical properties of the media in which they live. The topic is addressed from the viewpoint of scientists representing a variety of disciplines and approaches. Anatomists, biochemists, biophysicists, physiologists and zoologists each contribute their perspectives. The general topics examined include: respiration; acid base balance; osmoregulation; water and ionic exchanges; nutrient acquisition and absorption; nitrogen and sulfur metabolism; locomotion; sensory information and behaviour; energy metabolism; and temperature and evolution. Four or five papers deal with each of these general topics.
